Yes we do have COG members in Arizona! Dan here your Arizona AAD. I live in Tucson. Where are you? We do have rallies and Meet & Greets throughout the Southwest. This past fall we had one in Springerville and about 25 riders from Cali, Az, Co, Utah, Nevada and New Mexico showed up. So Cal is planning a rally in the next few months and we'll have another one in Northern AZ this Spring.

Welcome to the group. Gonnna love the new bike!
"DO", come ride with us.

As you asked "do we have COG members in AZ" I'm assuming you joined COG and don't have your number yet.
If so, welcome to the COGdom...

Ride safe, Ted

My confusion. Because of his question, I though he had joined already.

Same here.  My "next bike to get" evolved like this over the last 5 years:  Connie→FJR→Vaquero→Voyager→Roadmaster→Voyager(again)→GL1800→Connie/FJR/ST1300→Connie  :great:
